Speaking on her latest feat, Deepika said, “Well, it does bring a smile to my face, but sexy means different things to different people. For me, it’s not just physical. For me, being comfortable with who you are, is sexy! Confidence is sexy! Innocence and vulnerability is sexy.”

Millions across the globe voted for Deepika. The polling was done by UK-based newspaper Eastern Eye. Priyanka grabbed the second spot, while Alia Bhatt came number 5. Katrina Kaif at 7 and Sonam Kapoor obtained the 8 position.
